The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has several tools to educate veterans and older adults about the dangers of frauds and scams and help them prevent it. The CFPB is offering a new placemat on scams targeting the Aid and Attendance benefit, as part of their series of fraud and scam prevention placemats.

The CFPB recommends veterans and spouses to look out for these signs of possible Aid and Attendance benefit scams:

  • Offers to file an application to get you benefits or increase your pension for a fee
  • Claims to get you benefits faster for a fee
  • Advice to move your money so you’ll qualify for benefits

The CFPB also develops online and print resources to share important financial information with adults 62 and older. The mats and toolkits are available to download or order in bulk for free here.
